The year of the Introvert. 

The Rhodies in our backyard don't fit the Introvert profile.  They like being noticed.

Have you seen the introvert quote that seems to be all over the internet -- what's an introvert like me supposed to do with that! All that attention!  What I like is the last sentence:
"And if I open myself up to you, know that means you're very special to me."

 Are you mainly an introvert or extrovert?  I'm INFJ according to Myers/Briggs: Introvert/Intuitive/Feeling/Judging.  I still don't like the word Judging, even though the authors of the test claim they don't mean judgment -- too close for comfort for an introvert!  Happy Spring Day!

Doesn't Spring remind you of butterflies?
The lightness of the air, the warm sunshine, cool breezes.

I'm still thinking in poetry-speak. Being around young people is another sign of Spring. I seem to see many young women lately who are in bloom.  Would you want to be young again?


She stood tall, dark hair cropped short, soft curls full.
Dark eyes, filled with life, newness.
Young body, smooth skin.
Sundress dipping down over the small mounds of her breasts.

I stood next to her.
Thinking myself young still.
I thought, "It's so easy being beautiful when you are young."

“My parents are celebrating my mother’s 50th birthday,”
She said. 
I knew we were years--a different generation--away.
Her mother was young too.
